"Transparent paper” is becoming a popular choice for room decor, offering people the chance to add splashes of color to their homes by folding the paper into such shapes as flowers and stars. Like origami paper folding, the translucent colored sheets can easily be made into decorations that can be pasted on window glass and hung from the ceiling. http://the-japan-news.com/news/article/0001941547
